What to watch on Tuesday, February 9...
8pm, The CW
“Welcome to Earth-2” welcomes Barry, Wells, and Cisco to Ear… yeah, okay, you probably picked up on that part already. But their quest to rescue Jesse from Zoom is detoured when they run into this world’s Caitlin and Ronnie—a.k.a., the fire-and-ice combo of Killer Frost and Deathstorm. Back on Earth-1, an attack by metahuman Geomancer forces Jay to resume his Flashing ways, and now that I read that I realize it was a terrible way to put it.
In “Decompressed,” the team’s latest case presents some new challenges when the body of a murdered deep-sea diver must spend four days in a decompression chamber. This sort of thing is always easier in Toontown, where they can just inflate or deflate somebody with a big cartoon bellows.
Fresh Off the Boat
While Jessica and Louis enjoy some Valentine’s Day togetherness, Honey and Marvin babysit the boys in “Love and Loopholes.” In other romantic pursuits, Eddie plans to take Alison to a Janet Jackson concert.
Pretty Little Liars
The gals search for proof that Sara Harvey is the perpetrator of the latest threats in “Do Not Disturb.” Meanwhile, Hanna and Caleb devise a cunning plan to foil the stalker, Aria gets news from her family, and Ali comforts Emily.
Miss Piggy is caught in the midst of a potentially career-ending scandal in “A Tale of Two Piggies,” so Kermit and the gang rally around her. Also lending Muppety moral support are Pepe and Rizzo, who throw a house party to cheer up a lovelorn Gonzo.
In “The Biter,” Jimmy and Sara pull out all the stops to find out which of Edie’s schoolmates bit her. Elsewhere, Ravi connects Gerald and Vanessa with a hotshot tech investor (Drake Bell), who I’ll assume has not bitten anybody.
Marvel’s Agent Carter
California is in a rather sticky wicket in “The Atomic Job,” in the form of a potentially cataclysmic nuclear blast. Happily, Ms. Carter and Mr. Jarvis are on the case, keeping a stiff upper lip and keeping calm and carrying on and ruling the waves and all that rot.
9pm, The CW
“Physician, Heal Thy Selfie” leaves Liv in an investigative lurch when her and Clive’s latest case involves three (3) bodies with a combined total of zero (0) heads. Lacking her usual murder-victim munchies, she instead must eat the brains of a recently bus-splattered social media enthusiast. Elsewhere, Peyton turns to Ravi for emotional support while Blaine finds his worlds colliding.
When the Nine-Nine hosts detectives from the neighboring precinct in “The 9-8,” Jakes’ reunion with his former partner (Damon Wayans, Jr.) awakens Charles’s jealousy. And the rest of the team falls somewhat short of perfect hospitality as well.
Trapped in Eichen House along with Theo and the Chimera pack, Scott must find a way to save Lydia before it’s too late in “Lie Ability.” I’m pretty sure that exact sentence could also describe a plot thread from the old NES game Maniac Mansion.
9pm, WGN America
“Messengers” finds Big Foster and Asa each combatting the coal company in their own way. See, again, I feel like that same thing popped up in Maniac Mansion, except replace “coal company” with “sentient purple tentacle.”
After resuscitating a terminally ill cancer patient against the family’s wishes, Dr. Halstead lands himself and the hospital in hot water. (The streak ends here, because that does not sound like something that happened in Maniac Mansion.) Meanwhile in “Choices,” April and Dr. Reese treat a homeless man, and Dr. Choi seeks Dr. Charles’s help when his work with a bipolar patient brings his own issues to the forefront.
The story of Leopold and Loeb, wealthy college students who in 1924 murdered a young boy only to prove they could get away with it. Their trial became a flashpoint in American debates about morality, crime, and capital punishment.
After Dean’s dramatics spook a big potential client, Stewart recommends he shed his “Grinder” persona at long last in “The Retooling of Dean Sanderson.” But the therapy session designed to help him do just that instead inspires Dean to shrink the heads of the whole family. Guest-starMaya Rudolph is The Grinder’s latest guest star. (Not this The Grinder, the… you know what I mean.)
To solve the murder of a developer at a tech think tank in “Fundamentals of Naked Portraiture,” Brian and Rebecca must interview a robotic avatar of the victim that she had created. At HQ, Brian screens agents to join Mike and Ike as his third bodyguard; candidates must possess 5-7 years of experience and be prepared to answer to “Spike.”
Chili reacts badly when Severide confronts her about her recent behavior. Elsewhere in “All Hard Parts,” members of the firehouse throw their support behind Casey as a candidate for alderman, and the “Battle of the Badges” boxing match pits Jimmy against Antonio.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson
O.J.’s on the lam in “The Run of His Life,” forcing Shapiro and Kardashian to manage the fallout while the LAPD and the D.A.’s office follows in hot pursuit. You may remember these events from literally every television station that existed in the Western Hemisphere in 1994.
Zoe Ever After
Zoe suspects that Miguel blabbed to Gemini about her A.C. sojourn in “The Interview.” But Gemini has a new adventure of his own when he’s spotlighted in a leading sports documentary show.
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce
In “Rule #118: Let Her Eat Cake,” Abby is assigned bedrest when she collapses after Becca’s baby is born (perhaps the alliteration was too much for her). The healthier ladies throw Delia a surprise bachelor party at a strip club, while Jo mulls her feelings towards Scott.
SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 10pm, Myx TV
Another go-round for the game show in which contestants go on dates with people wearing bags on their heads. Will each paramour turn out to be a beauty, a beast, or a prepackaged endive salad?
SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Not Safe with Nikki Glaser
The comedian tackles matters of the heart—and points south—in this blend of panel discussions, field pieces, story segments and social experiments.
SEASON 4 FINALE, 10:30pm, BET
Real Husbands of Hollywood
Arsenio Hall and Craig Robinson, who helped torpedo Kevin’s pilot, may next do likewise to his hot streak at the poker table in “Easy as 1-2-3.”
